This is a compile-time setting in renderd, see - you need to re-compile renderd to change this.

Alternatively, swap out renderd with tirex ( which has no such limitation.

The following general information holds true for almost all Linux distributions: If you are told that you need to "compile" a piece of software that means that you will have to leave your usual "use package manager to install software" workflow. You will instead have to (1) download the source code, (2) install a software building environment, (3) compile the source code and possibly build a new package to install.

On a Debian or Ubuntu system, you can usually do apt source renderd which will download the source code for you, then you can make the modification you want. You might need to apt install build-essential or something to get the software build system installed. After than you will likely be able to run debuild to build a modified package (it might tell you to install additionall development packages first) that you can then install with dpkg -i.

If at all possible, ignore any instructions that tell you to "make install" or something like that, because these will install the software on your system bypassing the package manager and there will be no end of confusion especially if you are not an experienced sysadmin.
