Default '92 SP Power Steering leak

I don't recall seeing this leak from the bottom of the power steering pump before. It is not bad yet but ... advice welcome. The buildup says it has been there a while. It seems to be coming from a small "weep" hole.

I had a similar issue with my 88. I assume it's the same pump. It was because I was eager and replaced the filter and fluid with dexron 3. This new fluid was leaking out so I sucked out about half quart and replaced with Lucas stop leak power steering fluid and it's all good again.

No luckily. It is heading East from the Dalles. It is definitely getting bad however.
