I don't think high compression per se would generate a cam cover or valve cover leak. A head gasket maybe. Having said that, there are plenty of cars that have high compression that do not leak, certainly not RMS or the other leaks mentioned here.

It COULD BE the flat nature of the Boxer engine. Having said that, Subaru does NOT have a reputation for oil leaks.

Go figure.
