Thought the PS pump was leaking - replaced in my drive. Still had a hard to find leak. Took to good honest shop - diagnosed as the hydrobooster. Waiting on estimate now. See the part is available at O'reilly for about $106 - rebuilt. No sure this is a 'repair in my driveway' type of thing I could do. $584 with labor.
