It would be most appreciated if you would group reply (or just to the
list since I am subscribed) to keep the others on the mailing list
involved.  Also the mailing list mail is archived so that others can
benefit from the discussion later.

Ah, there is what I was fishing for.  You are using -tx without a
size.  It is defaulting to word size.  Please try using it with -tx1
and look at the output.  Is that acceptable?  That should generate the
same output on either big or little endian machines.

  od -tx1z -Ax

Is that basically the same as the following?

  dd conv=swab | od -txz

Sounds like you are on track.
