I know about these updates, and have tried updating port to 13.x release, but
not much success.

ejabberd project has switched to using git clones of dependencies, instead of
bundling them with the snapshot, which was not at all port friendly. As a
workaround, I packaged latest snapshot of all dependencies, but rebar stuff
needs to be workaround-ed, which I could not figure out last time I looked at
it. I'll look at it again in upcoming days.

I think other operating systems are also stuck at 2.1.13 for the same reason.

If you need to use the latest version, then I propose building/installing
yourself using their instructions.

Anyways, if you've already prepared an update for the port, then I'll be happy
to look at it.
