One way you could rotate it is with pstops (which is part of 
psutils, from ftp://ftp.dcs.ed.ac.uk/pub/ajcd/psutils.tar.gz 
or via freshmeat.net).

The following would rotate the ps file (assuming it started 
out being 8.5" wide):

pstops -w0 -h0 1:0R\(0in,8.5in\) input.ps > rotated.ps

Next, you would need to output the rotated file on a landscape 
page while converting it to pdf.  For a 11" W x 8.5" H page:

ps2pdf13 -g7920x6120 rotated.ps

(The units of measure are decipoints, where 720 decipoints = 1 inch)

I have a Postscript output from a Staroffice presentation that I wish to
convert to PDF.  No problem, ps2pdf works wonders - except the output is
sideways (views in portrait, not landscape).

I have tried changing StarOffice's print setup from landscape to portrait
when I print to a file, but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

Does anyone know if there is a way to do a 90-degree clockwise rotation in
the Ghostscipt utilities?
