Provide a smaller Pulsar docker image without unnecessary development packages

See original GitHub issue

Is your enhancement request related to a problem? Please describe.

The pulsar docker image installs a lot of packages that are unnecessary. For example, installing the tk-dev package pulls in many dependencies

The following NEW packages will be installed:
  binutils binutils-common binutils-x86-64-linux-gnu build-essential cpp cpp-9 dirmngr dpkg-dev fakeroot fontconfig-config fonts-dejavu-core g++ g++-9 gcc gcc-9 gcc-9-base gnupg
  gnupg-l10n gnupg-utils gpg gpg-agent gpg-wks-client gpg-wks-server gpgconf gpgsm libalgorithm-diff-perl libalgorithm-diff-xs-perl libalgorithm-merge-perl libasan5
  libasn1-8-heimdal libassuan0 libatomic1 libbinutils libbsd0 libc-dev-bin libc6-dev libcc1-0 libcrypt-dev libctf-nobfd0 libctf0 libdpkg-perl libdrm-amdgpu1 libdrm-common

  libglx0 libgomp1 libgssapi3-heimdal libhcrypto4-heimdal libheimbase1-heimdal libheimntlm0-heimdal libhx509-5-heimdal libice-dev libice6 libicu66 libisl22 libitm1
  libkrb5-26-heimdal libksba8 libldap-2.4-2 libldap-common libllvm12 liblocale-gettext-perl liblsan0 libmpc3 libmpfr6 libnpth0 libpciaccess0 libperl5.30 libpng-dev libpng-tools
  libpng16-16 libpthread-stubs0-dev libquadmath0 libreadline8 libroken18-heimdal libsasl2-2 libsasl2-modules libsasl2-modules-db libsensors-config libsensors5 libsm-dev libsm6
  libsqlite3-0 libssl1.1 libstdc++-9-dev libtcl8.6 libtk8.6 libtsan0 libubsan1 libutempter0 libvulkan1 libwayland-client0 libwind0-heimdal libx11-6 libx11-data libx11-dev
  libx11-xcb1 libxau-dev libxau6 libxaw7 libxcb-dri2-0 libxcb-dri3-0 libxcb-glx0 libxcb-present0 libxcb-randr0 libxcb-shape0 libxcb-shm0 libxcb-sync1 libxcb-xfixes0 libxcb1

  libxrender-dev libxrender1 libxshmfence1 libxss-dev libxss1 libxt-dev libxt6 libxtst6 libxv1 libxxf86dga1 libxxf86vm1 linux-libc-dev make manpages manpages-dev
  mesa-vulkan-drivers netbase patch perl perl-modules-5.30 pinentry-curses pkg-config readline-common shared-mime-info tcl tcl-dev tcl8.6 tcl8.6-dev tk tk-dev tk8.6 tk8.6-dev
  tzdata ucf uuid-dev x11-common x11-utils x11proto-core-dev x11proto-dev x11proto-scrnsaver-dev x11proto-xext-dev xbitmaps xdg-user-dirs xorg-sgml-doctools xterm xtrans-dev
  xz-utils zlib1g-dev

I used these commands to find out what pulls in the enourmous amount of packages:

docker run --rm -it ubuntu:20.04 bash
apt-get update
for i in openjdk-11-jdk-headless netcat dnsutils less procps iputils-ping python3 python3-dev python3-setuptools python3-yaml python3-kazoo libreadline-gplv2-dev libncursesw5-dev libssl-dev libsqlite3-dev tk-dev libgdbm-dev libc6-dev libbz2-dev                  curl; do echo $i; apt-get install -s $i; done

Describe the solution you’d like

The Pulsar docker image should not contain development tools for compiling.
