You didn't have to do that, it's already done. All you need to do is
@archive_dirs = </path/to/archive/dir/*>;
Note the angle brackets and lack of quotes. That's a Perl file glob
(similar to a shell file glob, e.g. 'ls *.pl') that returns all files
(and directories, too, unfortunately) in /path/to/archive/dir. Remember
that the majordomo.cf file is executed by Perl, so you can put all sorts
of useful things there (but you probably shouldn't).
