First of all you need to find out from where water is coming in to the trunk. When you open the trunk, you will see rubber seeling line on the egde all around it. Examin for damage and fit new one or fix exsisting. The trunk is not sealed of hermetically from the passenger's side, so your problem is not in that, but in water coming in the trunk.

Getting water in my trunk

it's either coming in from a bad trunk weather strip gasket or it could be coming in from the tail lights. You need to strip everything out of the trunk, get in the trunk close the trunk and have someone outside with a garden hose and let the water flow on the roof towards the trunk and you will need to see where it is coming from. once the leak is found you either need to change the weatherstrip or use an RTV or body seam sealer to stop the water from coming in.

My trunk seems to have sprang a leak. I've been researching it and it's a common problem but I can't find a solution to it other completely changing the trunk...anybody know where this leak is?

WHOA...Who told you to "change the trunk"???? Unless you have been in an accident, that sounds a pretty drastic maneuver.
Here's what I would do:
1. Get one of your GOOD friends to help with this
2. Get into the trunk with a flashlight and some paper towels
3. SHUT THE LID (This is where the good friend comes in)
4. Have you buddy run a water hose along the edges of the trunk and you should be able to see where the water is coming in.
5. Check around any thing that is drilled into the fender, like the antennae, etc...
6. If the leak is small (this is where the paper towel comes in), run the paper towel along the trunk gasket to see if you are picking up any small amounts of water leaking in.
7. Be nice to your GOOD friend as he is your "key" to getting out of the trunk.

I'd bet there is a trunk gasket that needs to be sealed up in some place(s). Clear automotive silicon sealer is available at your local Auto Parts Store.

My 2000 honda civic has a leak in either the tail light or trunk leaking into the passenger compartment on the drivers side

I am assuming the water comes in when it rains.
Could be the trunk gasket or the tail light.
You may need a body shop to find the leak.

After it rains water is in trunk Nissan Altima

When diagnosing a water leak, here's a handy tip. Check the accumulated water. If the water is dirty, look for leaks from the underside of the vehicle (floor, wheelwells, etc). If the accumulated water is clean, look for leaks from the topside of the vehicle (trunk seal, window seal, etc). To find where the water is coming from, shut yourself in the trunk with a flashlight and have an assistant run water over the trunk with a garden hose. You may have to remove some of the interior trunk trim to see exactly were the water is coming from, but chances are you'll find it. Also another common cause of water leaks are from impact damage, so check for collision damage repair. while your in there. -hope this helps.

Water In Trunk

If it is rusted out yes. find a friend that is NOT claustraphobic and have him get in the trunk and close it. oh and he will need a flashlight. also becareful when you close the trunk that he is not near any of the hinges when you close it. I was the one to get into the trunk one time and the person slammed it down and i nearly was struck with one of then hinges use a hose and spray a small amount of water along the opening of the trunk.... have your friend keep and eye on the weatherstriping around the areas you are spraying. if it's leaking that way you will located it quickly.... now let your friend out of the truck.
If you can't find anyone to get in the trunk while you test it.... just by a replacement weatherstripping.

Kind of back yard mechanic way to do it but it's effective.
