Just noticed: Is there specific reason why -current still has ELILO 3.14?

ELILO got an update with a "MAJOR" bugfix to version 3.16 this year:

 * Adds native x86x crossbuild functionality
   build 32bit or 64bit versions from either environment via
   make ARCH=ia32|x86_64 (the ARCH IS case sensitive).
   make by itself will default to the native host arch.
 * Add console reset call during initialization. thanks A. Steinmetz
 * simplify output of no GOP warning text so it no longer looks like an error.
 * MAJOR: Fixed Fault crash when EFI memory map changes from under elilo.
   (from an outside interrupt in this case). When the EFI Memory map 
   changes after elilo has already built boot params to pass to the 
   kernel the EFI call to ExitBootSvcs just prior to boot will fail 
   because elilo has the old map key. This is valid EFI behavior, elilo
   retries to pick up the new memory map and key but had already freed 
   the start params portion of boot params resulting in a NULL DEREF
   crash reset once it hands the now bogus boot params to the kernel on
   the 2nd successful call to exit efi and boot. 
	Thanks to Jerry Hoemann @ HP for reporting this bug.
 * minor bugfix, fixed -m option broken. thanks Allan-lsk.
