xcwcp doesn't use pulseaudio

Bug Description

I tried xcwcp on a system with a fresh ubuntu 18.04 LTS install with ubuntu-hams-updates ppa installed. It gave an error on the commandline:

xcwcp: PulseAudio output not available (device: ( default ))

with pulseaudio being available fine, so I expected it to use pulseaudio.

With strace I found it tries to use libpulse-simple.so which is not available. I fixed it by making a softlink

/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu$ sudo ln -sf libpulse-simple.so.0 libpulse-simple.so

So this is an incompatibility between a freshly installed libpulse0 and xcwcp.
