MAXARGS is a macro defined in servers/{slapd,slurpd}/config.c
that is used to create an automatic array of char *; you might 
turn the array into a global, dynamically resized array starting
from MAXSIZE that is later changed to some value read from the
file; note that the config parsing file must start with some 
reasonable default (500 should suffice), and the change should 
take place carefully because while reading you're still using 
the values held in the array you realloc.
