devel/elfutils installs header files which reference symbols that are not defined anywhere in 10.4-RELEASE. Here's what happens when you try to include those headers in a build:

The symbols in question were added to head in r312599 and merged to stable/11 by r318972. However, they were never merged to stable/10. devel/elfutils should probably be marked as BROKEN for releases < 11.1.
I suggest reverting r430454 and changing 10xxx to 11xxx or 12xxx, but I don't have a ports bit there isn't much I can do.
Or you could see if Ed wants to MFC the header bits to 10; I don't.

Mark elfutils as IGNORED on 11.0 and below
I don't think there's any point in MFCing to stable/10, because there will never be a release 10.5. Better just to mark the port as IGNORED for < 11.1-RELEASE.
I'd jump directly to 12.0, but either way :-).
Is there something wrong with elfutils on 11.1? It seems to be working for me.
I have not tested it (no time in the moment). But, maybe this patch could help (the same errors)
The Makefile.am part must adapted (cause of the existing patch-Makefile.am). The other patches applies clean (I quickly tested it in the port).
That patch doesn't work, because 10.4-RELEASE's elf_common.h _does_ define SHF_COMPRESSED. The patch would need some extra work. Frankly, I don't want to put in the time, especially because so few ports depend on libelf. I'd be happy just with the IGNORE_FreeBSD_10 solution.
No one is available to support this for stable/10.

New revision: 473112
Update devel/elfutils to 0.172
- Sparc patch no longer applies cleanly and was dropped.
- Other patches updated to apply to 0.172.
- stable/10 and 11.0 lack needed ELF header types; and 10 is closed. Skip
building on these (PR).
- gnulib handling was reverted to pre-r454110 style to allow using pkg.
