The i386-cygwin32 is based on egcs-1.1.1, which does not support
"#pragma pack".  The resolution of the problem is
  - Adding "__attribute__((packed))" to each structure as Martin wrote, or
  - Upgrading to gcc-2.95.x.

The i386-netbsdpe is based on gcc-2.95.2 and it has no problem
on structure packing.
