Oil leak - pt#1 - front of engine

I'm in the middle of changing belts and can see quite a bit of oil in the area above the crankshaft seal and behind the auto-tensioner - I can't make out where it's coming from - any ideas?

One photo shows the area above the crank...


another shows beneath the crank - I think I have a small oil weep here ..

Does anyone have any suggestions as to the likely cause of that oil leak at the front -- It almost seems like it's leaking from the side and coming down & around the front of the block. The alternative is that its the crank leaking ...but if that is the case, why is most of the oil going up and to the right of the engine behind the tensioner?

Finally, the last photo shows an oil leak around where the dip-stick goes into the block. I don't think that this is connected to the one at the front - any comments on what is likely to be causing this mess at the rear?
