You can indeed download the Macports tree from there, but you should also have 
a local copy of all of it in your Macports installation.

The fact that the repository is from a present installation also means that there may be 
patches that you will miss to install 4.13. 

Marko pointed out the place describing this post-configure hack. It means that you need
to configure kde4-runtime, then manually modify the file, and then build.

I assume that it may be quite a hassle to manually reproduce the Macports environment. 
In addition to the definitions in each Portfiles, all KDE ports depend on a portgroup, kde4, 
which defines a whole bunch of constants. This portgroup then also depends on two 
other portgroup, qt4 and cmake, which also define a lot of environment variables and configuration
