This seems to work:

(eval-when-compile (require 'cl))

(defcustom malekzista 'foo
  "An option with restrictions decided at runtime."
  :type '(radio (const foo)))

(defun malekzista-add-option (new-option)
  "Add new option to variable `malekzista'."
  (push (list 'const new-option) (cdr (get 'malekzista 'custom-type))))
