[R] Fitting long names in boxplot

I have the following code:

subsetTimeDataPlot <- boxplot(subsetTimeData$time ~ subsetTimeData$build, horizontal=True, col="lightblue", ...)

The 'names' component consists of strings that can be up to 20-30 characters long.

How would I go about drawing the names vertically (not the boxplot) or shrinking the names text (I tried cex.names=0.7 but this didn't help).

Thanks for any advice, I apologize if these are stupid questions,

-Alex
