OK, the location of the leak pretty much answers my question. You have rusted out brake lines. I can't tell the degree of the problem from where I'm at but I can tell you I have dealt with many of these situations. The bad sections of line have to be cut out and ne lines have to be fabricated from straight line. They cannot use simple compression fittings to do this. Every connect has to be double flared and a thread together union used. You also have to start where you have good solid line to work with. Most of the time it means replacing all lines from about the firewall back. This usually takes about 3 to 5 hours of labor and about $50 in parts so you could be looking at $300 to $500, depending what condition the rest of the lines are in.
