Oil in intercooler pipe...

Well, my 200TQ engine is finally on a stand in the basement ready for
teardown.  The first thing I removed was the pipe leading across the front
of the engine from the turbo to the intercooler.  Standing it on it's side,
about 2-3 tablespoons of what appears to be motor oil ran out on the floor.
 What should I infer from this?  Bad turbo oil seals assuming there are
such things?  It's not, could it be, normal?  Should I be planning to
rebuild/replace the turbo as part of this rebuild?
