I'm also glad to see users who actually use it on NetBSD :-)

I'm afraid binaries built on NetBSD/amiga uses X11R6 binaries/libraries
instead of X11R7 ones (atari port has switched to X11R7).

NetBSD/atari 6.x doesn't ship Xserver binaries, but
1.6.2 Xserver still works on at least my TT030:

The following procedure still works
(I've also upated some files in the archive for NetBSD 6.1.3)
but I'm not familiar with Atari and Falcon hardware.

/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/XF86Config file have following lines:
Section "Screen"
    Driver      "fbdev"
#    Device      "Falcon"
    Device      "TT"
    Monitor     "Color Video Monitor"
so maybe you have to enable "Falcon" line instead?

It looks ite console doesn't support (at least) ANSI color
escape sequence. iteconfig(8) man page has some description
about colors, but I don't know the old ite driver..

Wow! 68060 with 526MB seems one of the fastest NetBSD/m68k machine ;-)
