Depends largely on people's time and inclination to track down all the
dependent packages and issues resulting from updating it. As I've not
done this myself I can't comment further.

Yes, just `make config` in the erlang-runtime21 dir or `poudriere options -cn lang/erlang-runtime21` if  you build your own packages (recommended & preferred).

You should also look into dtrace providers for Erlang/OTP its a great combo with FreeBSD.
