Do not build the target based on X11. X11 is not part of the iPhone
and so it is not part of the iPhone header files (they are different
headers than the system header files).

Einstein for iPhone must be built using the special iPhone version of
Cocoa, which is quite similar, yet not the same. You have to use UIKit
to generate the basic UI and emulator surface.
