I also had problems with the rotation of eps files in LaTeX presentations. Now, I produce eps files in R with postscript( ), 'distill' it with "ps2eps", make a pdf with "epstopdf", include it in my LaTeX file with \pgfimage{ }, use LaTeX class "beamer" ( and compile my presentation with pdflatex. This works great!
