Leaky Power Steering Pump

Could it be a leaky shaft seal? If so, can it be replaced, or is it time to visit the wrecker?

I will try tightening the reservoir to pump bolts first, then take it from there...

I needed some oil pump seals, so I decided to try for the o-ring at the same time. The dealer did not have a listing for it!!!
I pulled the pump apart, and found there was a small o-ring around a tube that sticks out of the base of the reservoir into the pump. It is either really old and mangled, or this ring is not an o-ring, it has a fancy profile.
There was a ring cut out of the pump flange that the reservoir sat on, around the pump inlet, but I could see no O-ring there.
Is there supposed to be just the o-ring on the tube, or is there one around the inlet as well?
Is the seal on the tube supposed to be round,or have a fancy profile?
