That's worrying me too.
We could use anonymous struct, but it seems to be prohibited in C89 which
we stick to.
Another idea, which comes to my mind, is to manually calculate size of
padding and insert it directly to PGXACT struct.  But that seems rather
ugly too.  However, it would be ugly definition not ugly usage...
Do you have better ideas?
