usually an "O" ring where the shaft comes out of the box but if the shaft is worn where the seal runs you may have to replace the shaft

SOURCE: my ford focus is leaking
Is the oil you see reasonably clean or is it black. The gearbox oil would be cleaner than the engine oil. Gearbox leaks would most likely come from one of the following:-

is it manual tranny? if so u do so under the car by removing the fill up plug which is located on the side of the tranny on driver side of the car if i remember. The plug under the tranny is to drain it.
If u drain it, when u fill it back up, u do so until oil slightly spills out by way of that side plug.

SOURCE: Ford C4 Auto gearbox spits oil
It sounds like it could be overfilled, but that will be easy enough to check on the dipstick. Should be checked with the engine idling in neutral. Otherwise, the trans could be overheating, causing the oil to expand to the point that it spits out the breather. Pull the dipstick and check the fluid condition, if it's dark and smells burnt, the trans may be slipping or overheating for some other reason, and it's probably time to get a trans shop involved. You should probably run an auxiliary cooler at the radiator area in the type of application you describe, especially if you're gonna be using the gas pedal fairly heavily! Sounds like a sweet car, lots of fun to be had in something like that.

SOURCE: gearbox seal leaking slightly
Depends what seal it is? Is this a Automatic or manual?
Also a lot of seals will look a little damp but be fine if it is a moving part like a shift seal. Nothing to worry unless it is a major leak and causing to add fluid.
If it is not leaking just keep a eye on it for the next couple thousand miles. If not leak then enjoy your car and don;t worry unless you start to see fluids under the car.
