Yes, nitf_37 won't work against the stable branch.

Generally speaking, I think you should only run the stable branch with its 
autotest in branches/1.6/autotest, and not trunk autotest, as there are new 
features and bug fixes that go only in trunk and whose testing against stable 
can easily crash. Of course, I could make some conditionnal testing on the 
GDAL version to skip that test, but I don't think it's really worse the 
effort as similar issues could appear elsewhere in that autotest suite. And 
even if you don't get crashes, you'll get lots of failed tests.
