Seems libr0 is not (at least not the only) problem.. it's not even 
installed in my wheezy system.. but just about everything in TDE depends 
on kdesktop-trinity (which requires binutils < 2.23)

I haven't yet worked out where libr0 figured when I tried installing TDE 
in sid. Using xfce there for now but would really like to get TDE installed.
