[teqc] Trimble RTX and teqc

The -O.sum option takes a single argument, specifying where the output is to go
(as explained in https://postal.unavco.org/pipermail/teqc/2016/002204.html). So
you want to execute:

teqc -O.sum . 42400511.18o > 42400511.sum
        note the dot!

(The '.' specifies the output is to go to stdout, which the shell then sends
to the file 42400511.sum.)  Another way to do the same thing:

teqc -O.sum 42400511.sum 42400511.18o

where here you are specifying directly to teqc that the -O.sum output is to
go to a file named 42400511.sum.
