I don't think that TDE depends on pulse, at least not the base libraries. I have 
not *all* TDE packages installed, but quite a copious install and there is no 
pulse (on Devuan ascii).

If you find a pulse program/package you can try to find out why it is installed 
with this handy command:

 $ aptitude why <package>

Kind regards,
