[teqc] TEQC under OS X

Logging into the OSX box I use to compile teqc, I don't see anything
with "usb" or "serial" in /dev (e.g. `ls /dev | grep -i usb`) -- but
who knows if this box is fully configured.

Googling on "osx /dev serial usb" (no quotes on the actual search),
there tons of hits, and this might be promising:
see "Configuring and using Serial to USB under OSX".  (The example
is even to read GPS waypoints from a Garmin rx.)
