Finding common ancestor of a file using RTC CLI

Without bringing RTC Eclipse client into the picture, I would like to invoke an external merge tool (kdiff3) to resolve conflicting merges when accepting incoming changes into an RTC repository workspace.  To get a local copy of the file in the incoming changeset, I plan to use scm changeset extract. How would I get the common ancestor version?

When you have a conflict, you should be able to get the ancestor using 'scm conflicts --ancestor {filepath} --content' or just 'scm conflicts --ancestor {filepath}' depending on which version of RTC you are using. For now it will display on the console but you can pipe the output to a file.
