I use spray on copper gasket sealant applied to both
sides of the manifold gasket and to the surfaces mating.
Once the engine heats up the first time most of it kind 
of catalyzes and all the little copper particles bond and fill
all the little nooks and crannies that could start leak propagation.

.... can't honestly remember ever having to deal with manifold
leaks (in or out) since I made this my standard practice. Head gaskets
as well.

Metal towards the manifold, I believe. I don't think sealer would be 
appropriate here. Exhaust manifolds get pretty hot.
