What kind of leak, and which way?
Coolant out to the air, oil into the coolant, coolant into the cylinder, exhaust into the coolant, etc etc.
Since you made it to 169Kmiles, I and the other H6 owners would love to hear what major work you had to do along the way- timing chain? water pump? etc.
I have an '03 LLBean with about 80K.

No, its fine, nothing wrong. He saw the seepage and is now concerned.
Before I worry about replacing gaskets. I'd consider a can of the subaru "conditioner" recommended for the 2.5 engines.

Coolant-to-air only, seepage only, maybe add the magic gasket conditioner, and just watch it closely.
A little anti-freeze seeping is not a big deal. It could seep the way it is for a long time- or get worse tomorrow, but I'd say chances are good it'll only seep for a good long while.
