Huh? X11 is an add-on for Debian, too -- you have install the package!
That is, for both Mac OS X and Debian, the initial installer gives you
the option of X11 and thus I would think X11 can be deemed "built in".
With Mac OS X, though, if you don't take up the option, it's probably
not obvious how to get it back (perhaps you have to boot from the
installation CD or something).
