No cpufreqd does not depend on neither pmud, apmd or pbbuttond,
it only uses kernel interfaces : either /proc/apm, /proc/pmu,
/proc/acpi or sysfs equivalent.

I already repied this to Rory offlist : 

 pradalie@ceruse:~$ apt-cache depends cpufreqd
   Depends: debconf
   Depends: libc6

 Moreover I looked at the code while tracking a missing fclose, and the
 only stuff needed by cpufreqd is /dev/pmu, but not at all pmud.
 cpufreqd speaks directly to the kernel.

 Maybe you just did not set the good driver in /etc/cpufreqd.conf 
 pradalie@ceruse:~$ grep pmu /etc/cpufreqd.conf
 pm_type=pmu #(acpi, apm or pmu)
