another question on rear main

If the rear main seal was leaking shouldn't I see some "streaks" on the rotating parts inside the bell housing? The rotating parts are clean and dry. The area at the bottom of the bell housing is accumulating oil. Is there any other place oil could be coming from that would allow it to accumulate in the lower part of the bell housing and show up dripping off of the bolt heads underneath the starter area? Have not decided to try to undertake this job myself but I have ordered the parts from Anybody ever seen oil leaking from around this area on this style engine before and if so where was it coming from?
