Thanks folks!  Heres the code I have:

(define-key minibuffer-local-map "%" 'percentsub)
(defun percentsub ()
  (insert (file-name-nondirectory
            (window-buffer (minibuffer-selected-window))))))

Prior to Lennarts suggestion I had hacked together
(cadr (buffer-list))
in place of the last line which was of course quite unacceptable

Any further suggested improvements?  I guess this is going to fail in
some cases when theres no filename...

If you want to add it just to the ":" prompt:

(eval-after-load 'viper-keym
  '(define-key viper-ex-cmd-map [?%] 'percentsub))

Bind the character '%' to

Also, note that you'll need to make an interactive function out of the
form to bind it to a key.
Oups, that's not all...
It won't work, because `buffer-file-name' will of course return the
minibuffer's file name (i.e. none).  I'm currently not aware of an easy
way to get the originating buffer from the minibuffer.  Sorry.

Maybe minibuffer-selected-window + window-buffer?
