Update to 0.170
Please update elfutils to 0.170.
No new portlint warnings was added.
Was tested with poudriere on i386/amd64 for supported releases.
Patch looks good to me. I cannot commit to the ports tree, so please find a ports committer to apply the change.

Update to 0.170
Any committer may commit with port committer review/accept.
This can be done either in issue (bugzilla), or with a Phabricator review (with review URL referenced in Issue URL field).
It would be helpful for submitter (or maintainer) to provide a commit log message, itemised with rationale/explanation (the why) of changes.
@Conrad, Please also set maintainer-approval (attachment flag) value to + to signify maintainer approval. Attachment -> Details -> maintainer-approval [+]
I'm not a port committer, so I can't review/accept to commit.
Also, I've already set maintainer feedback to + and given my explicit approval in comment form.

Here's git commit history instead: https://sourceware.org/git/?p=elfutils.git;a=log;h=766df1e15c1e8f8bc9890e7538eb2ef15a6516dc
Seems like big improvements in DWARF5 support, some various architecture support enhancements, some bug fixes. Only about 20 commits between 0.169 and 0.170. 0.169 has some bugfixes and portability enhancements over 0.168. I don't have a good coherent commit message here other than something vague like "some bugfixes and enhancements."
