So now that my 40 is being driven around regularly, it has decided to start leaking fluids at will. My clutch master cylinder started leaking fluid from the rear seal, into the floor board. Do you guys think it's worth rebuilding/sealing or should I just replace it with a new one? I have no clue if it has been rebuilt before.

Replace it. Easy and inexpensive. Do the slave cylinder, also. There are a number of threads on this, many from about 2-3 months ago. Beno or CDan can get you OEM for a fair price. Check out the condition of the soft line while you're at it.

...and make sure they give you the right size bolt for your slave.

Lets just say it in involved my wife calling a cab and me searching for a tree limb to repair the Master cylinder.
