[perl #18131] [PATCH] make print header information

..../ prints out information about the *size* of
each piece of header information in a bytecode file, but
doesn't actually print out the *values* of each parameter.
This patch corrects that.

Also: are the sizes of the initial header fields (wordsize,
byteorder, major, minor, etc...) always going to be 8-bit
bytes, or is that system-dependent? In other words, can I
get the wordsize for a PBC file on all platforms by reading
the first 8 bits or do I have to do something more complicated?
(./pdd/parrotbyte.pod doesn't make it clear to me.)
