Not, the xml:space attribute is an attribute used on definition schemas (like 
DTD or RelaxNG) to define how spaces must be treated on elements. Plus, 
<indexterm> is already defined as xml:space="default".

The issue you are seing is due how FOP-0.93 handles <fo:wrapper> elements, 
that is the FO element used to map <indexterm> and needed to create the 
cross- reference links when not using the @zone attribute. 

After being sure that the FO output is generated with indent="no", like Bob 
said (is the default if you has not changed it on your customization layer) I 
can think on only to ways to solve the issue at this moment

One is changing the tagging to:

        This index entry is in <indexterm>
                <secondary>index entry</secondary>
        </indexterm>  the middle of a paragraph.

Not tested but should work.

The other is to use @zone attributes for cross-references links generation:

<para id="some_id">
        This index entry is in
             <indexterm zone="some_id">
                <secondary>index entry</secondary>
        the middle of a paragraph.

and then avoid the <fo:wrapper> creation adding this to your customizationm 

<xsl:template match="indexterm"/>

That is what we are using on LFS.
