Oil Leak

I've heard that (at least some models of) Boxsters are known to have oil leaks from the main gasket. The leaks are generally quite small, but it is still a leak, regardless. While the part is very inexpensive, since you have to open up half the engine, labor on fixing it tends to be pretty pricey. Have any of you had this oil leak? If so, have you opted to get it fixed, or did you choose to live with it. Any suggestions/recommendations? Also, if I were to opt to fix the leak, is there anything else that I might as well have replaced since I am opening up that area?

Thank you
