You want to set the combination of 'provisional-distance-between-starts',
'provisional-label-separation', and the label's 'start-indent'.  See the
graphic at http://www.w3.org/TR/xsl11/#d0e12377.

FYI, the Print and Page Layout Community Group at the W3C has developed an
XSLT extension function for running an XSL formatter (FOP only so far) to
get an area tree that you can use mid-transform to work out the formatted
size of things.  One of the motivations is adjusting the width of list
item labels:
