You'll have to use the option :side of the packer. Hereafter is an exemple

(define f (make <Frame>))
(define mb1 (make <Menu-button> :text "File" :parent f))
(define mb2 (make <Menu-button> :text "Edit" :parent f))
(define mb3 (make <Menu-button> :text "Help" :parent f))
(pack mb1 mb2 :side 'left)
(pack mb3 :side 'right)
(pack f :expand #t :fill 'x)
(pack (make <Text>)) ; So that the f frame is extended

Hope it helps
