SF5 Forester vacuum hoses - where do they go?

I've replaced the turbo on my SF5 Forester - no problem there. But, all the vacuum hoses (and a bunch of other rubber parts) went very brittle, and shattered everywhere as soon as I moved them. I've never seen anything quite like it. Does anyone have any diagrams covering the vacuum hoses that pass near the turbo? Or if nothing like that is available, can anyone take photos, or describe the hose routing accurately?

That's the image most people refer to when setting up their boost control lines, obviously relevant to standard boost control. A pic of how your lines are set up at the moment would be good too. 

 

Also check where the turbo inlet pipe connects to the turbo, the rubber often gets torn and causes vacuum leaks.

Thanks Caleb, that's perfect - couldn't have hoped for better! Re the intake pipe, yes, that fell to bits when I took the old tuirbo off. I bought a replacement, which is intact but still feels pretty fragile. Will have to be careful with it.
