6.0L Oil Leak? - oil on turbo input pipe

I just noticed an oil buildup on the front/bottom of the turbo input pipe on my '03 6.0L. I checked the oil level and it's ok, so I'm not sure where this is coming from (see pictures). I've never seen this before and am wondering is this is a sign of a more serious problem.

You probably have the same thing at the intercooler boots. It's mainly caused by the oil mist dumped into the intake side of the turbo by the crankcase vent (CCV). A lot of guys re-route the vent tube to the rear of the truck to keep all of that oil out of the intercooler.

I know it is especially bad on high mileage 7.3 engines.
