Maybe just build the PulseAudio modules locally?

(Versions apply to Debian Edu Stretch combi server; adjust if needed.)

Login as first user (example: jdoe).
sudo service xrdp stop

(Make sure /etc/apt/sources.list contains a line like
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch main):
sudo apt edit-sources
sudo apt update

Get sources and build dependencies:
sudo apt install dpkg-dev
apt source pulseaudio xrdp
sudo apt build-dep pulseaudio xrdp

For PulseAudio 'configure' is all what is needed:
cd pulseaudio-10.0/

Adjust PulseAudio modules Makefile:
cd ../xrdp-0.9.1/sesman/chansrv/pulse/
Edit Makefile's first line (example; absolute path needed):
PULSE_DIR = /skole/tjener/home0/jdoe/pulseaudio-10.0

Build the pulseaudio modules:

Copy modules to PulseAudio modules directory:
sudo cp *.so /usr/lib/pulse-10.0/modules/

Start xrdp, now w/ sound enabled:
sudo service xrdp start
