Maybe easiest way is to use snapshot.

At the moment latest snapshot of 13-CURRENT is r353427. So if you only
want to use relatively recent 13-CURRENT, you only need to install
system by using snapshot installer.

If you want to use newer revison then you still need to checkout
source tree and build and install world and kernel. But you are less
likely to encounter problems than starting with 12.0-RELEASE
