I spent some time on this and installed a minimal stretch with x:
- install by D-I usually, but not to choose any desktop task.
- after rebooting into the installed system, install following
packages manually:
    xorg xserver-xorg-video-all xserver-xorg-input-all openbox xdm
- then another reboot, login into the non-root user, install and run

I confirmed that there's only one package need to be installed
specifically: libdbus-glib-1-2

Yes, there's still many libraries marked as "not found" in ldd output.
But it doesn't prevent me to run torbrowser-launch, download the
latest TBB, launch the firefox, and confirm it's working by access:
 - https://check.torproject.org
 - https://www.youtube.com (didn't verify the audio output)

I confirm in my environment, it still occurs (by executing firefox that way)
But it runs well by normal command: torbrowser-launcher.
So I don't think it a real dependency.

I'll only add libdbus-glib-1-2 as dependency.
