If PC-BSD doesn't have some special procedure for installing normal 
FreeBSD ports, and you're comfortable with modifying ports, copy the 
x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati port to a new directory, modify the Makefile 
to show PORTVERSION= 6.13.2, run make makesum to update the checksums, 
deinstall the old port and install the new one.  This assumes there are 
lots of other things, including that there are no changes in pkg-plist.

I've been running 6.13.2 since the announcement, no problems so far.
