xmon memory dump does not handle LE

I was hoping this would be any easy fix, but now it looks like it will 
be more difficult.

The basic problem is that xmon memory commands like 'dd' do not properly 
display the data on LE instances. This means that not only is it 
difficult to read but one cannot copy-paste addresses from the output. 
This severely encumbers debugging using xmon on LE systems.

It looks like prdump() is highly optimized but only works on BE. Have I 
missed something, or will it take a significant re-write of this code to 
fix the LE problem?
