There's a very easy way to fix your problem without adding special racial
maximum variables.  Just find the code that limits their abilities in
affect_total() in handler.c.  Then change each of the upper limits like

GET_DEX(ch) = MAX(MAX(0, MIN(GET_DEX(ch), i)), ch->real_abils.dex);

This won't let all elves get up to 19 dex, but any that roll 19 during
creation will stay at 19.
