More information would be helpful. Engine size, and if it looks like it's leaking from one pulley or several? My first thought is that the front seal is leaking around the crankshaft pulley. Other oil leak sources are the timing cover, the valve cover(s), or even a cracked cylinder head, could let oil trickle down and get slung around by the pulleys. What's the highest point of the engine that looks like oil is leaking around? Either way, it should be repaired.

Unwrap the belt from all the pulleys and install the new belt following the belt diagram located near the radiator support. ALWAYS make sure the grooved side of the belt is contacting the grooved pulleys, and the smooth side of the belt is contacting the smooth pulleys (Idler pulleys).
