That's a really old version. There is definitely a newer one in the  
tree so your port tree must be *way* out of date.


sudo port -d sync

This will update your tree to the latest portfiles. If you are that  
far behind on the portfiles then it is pretty likely you are running  
an old version of macports too. So I recommend you also run:

sudo port -d selfupdate

This will update macports to the latest version.

I just checked and macports has ragel-5.24 in the tree which is the  
latest release. Perform the above steps and try to install again and  
you'll probably be fine.
