As others have said,  par(las = <n>) has been implemented in the mean time,
and the implementer has forgotten to update the documentation.

I've corrected it, and (in the doc source par.Rd) it looks like

  \item{las}{numeric in \{0,1,2\}; the style of axis labels.
    0 = always parallel to the axis [\emph{default}],
    1 = always horizontal,
    2 = always perpendicular to the axis.}

which is S compatible.
However, in principle there is one case missing :

    3 = always vertical

(it can almost be constructed by using las=1 and "manually" turn the plot
 by  90 degrees...).

Can anyone think of a situation where one would want this?
