The trunk is GRASS 7, which isn't compatible with 6.x at the library

However, there is no problem with having multiple versions of GRASS

Also, there are probably more add-ons available for 6.x than 7.x right
now, so you might be find the 6.5 development branch (develbranch_6)
to be more useful than the trunk.
