Couple of ?'s about oil leaks, with PICTURES!

I just bought this 2000 Prelude SH and it is bone dry on the bottom of the car, however, there are some spots on the motor that I knew about and I want to get them fixed. I can't tell where exactly the leak(s) is coming from. So here are the 3 pictures of places there is a bit of dried oil. Thanks for looking!

first one looks like it could be the distributor seal, then the second one im not to sure about there shouldn't be oil in that part of the tranny where the starter bolts on, if you pull the black timing plug out is there oil on the back of it? if so then you could have some rear main seal leakage

the first one almost looks like an exhaust leak, that looks like carbon not oil

I have the same black area that you do in your first pic. I'm pretty sure it's just dirt though... :P

I pulled the timing plug so that you could see in at the flywheel, nothing at all in there, all dry. I believe that is just run off from my leaky cam seal (pic #3). As far as the 1st picture, I think its just the exhaust gasket.
