Then that may be a limitation hard-coded into  dvips .

There is no variable for this, which is consistent with  dvips  not
granting access to change it.

Study the section of the LaTeX2HTML manual for creating "Segmented Documents".
This lets you process parts of the whole document as smaller jobs.
(e.g., split at each \chapter or \section )

There is a fair bit of setup required to have the different jobs produce
interlinked output, that appears as different pages in a single large job.

But if you have < 1000 images in each segment, then this provides a way
to move forward with a very large document.

The LaTeX2HTML manual itself is done this way, so serves as
example source coding + Makefiles.
