I believe Walter has said that he doesn’t intend to support #pragma pack, but
have discovered some macOS system headers that use the feature. At least,
fcntl.h and sys/event.h use the feature in defining some structures.

An example from event.h:

#pragma pack(4)

struct kevent {
        uintptr_t       ident;  /* identifier for this event */
        int16_t         filter; /* filter for event */
        uint16_t        flags;  /* general flags */
        uint32_t        fflags; /* filter-specific flags */
        intptr_t        data;   /* filter-specific data */
        void            *udata; /* opaque user data identifier */

#pragma pack()

(I have no idea why pragma pack is even used here, the structure has no
I haven’t studied the headers closely enough to see if ignoring it matters or
