Generates and checks TTH checksums

'tthsum' generates and checks TTH checksums (root of the THEX hash tree). The Merkle Hash Tree is a hash construct that exhibits desirable properties for verifying the integrity of files and file subranges in an incremental or out-of-order fashion. 'tthsum' uses the Tiger hash algorithm for both the internal and the leaf nodes, and has an interface identical to md5sum.
