Default Power steering leak

Got a slow leak somewhere around the power steering pump it would seem. Stays all oily but can't actually see a drip or anything. Relatively clean around the pump shaft.

I know the hydroboost was leaking. It left a puddle everywhere I parked and drained the reservoir in a day, but I had a small leak before that.

Wondering if there's a seal between the reservoir and the pump. Good possibility it could be there just from studying it.
Was gonna pull the reservoir off with the pump on the truck when I changed the hydro boost but its held on with Phillips head screws and they refused to yield to 2 hands on a good screwdriver. Not in the most handy place to access either.

Wondering if anybody else had a similar experience and what you found?
I know some replacement pumps come without a reservoir..

its been my experience that a fluid leak attracts dust/dirt......if the shaft seal i
area is clean I might look there first as the leak is washing the dirt away. jmo
