It updates your svn checkout to the specified svn revision.  In this case, r132696, which would provide

Yes, I don't know where you have your dports checkout.  That is where I have mine.  You would need to do that wherever you have your svn checkout of dports.

So I decided to fetch from http://trac.macports.org/changeset/132694 the corresponding Portfile, "install" it in   /opt/local/var/macports/sources/nue.de.rsync.macports.org/macports/release/tarballs/ports/x11/xorg-server-devel, and see whether port can handle this. It can't, out of a good reason: there does not seem to exist an archive for the xorg-server(-devel) sources. How can I get these?

There is an archive for the sources, but we don't use that.  We use git for the xorg-server-devel port.  Assuming you put the correct Portfile in place, you would also need to put the correct patches in place.  However, it looks like you're using tarballs for dports.  I suggest that you use subversion instead.  See https://guide.macports.org/#installing.macports.subversion

For example, do this:
mkdir ~/src
cd ~/src
svn co https://svn.macports.org/repository/macports/trunk/dports
cd dports

Then edit /opt/local/etc/macports/sources.conf to contain something like this instead of the existing line:
file:///Users/pete/src/dports [default]

Then to update xorg-server-devel to r132696, just do:
cd ~/src/dports/x11/xorg-server-devel
svn update -r 132696
