I find it the rotation won't show up in the DVI file, but will once you
convert the DVI file into a PS file.  But that's another story.

When I need to generate a PS file in R I always do something like:
postscript("foo.eps", height = 6.9, width = 6.6,
horizontal = FALSE, onefile = FALSE, print.it = FALSE)
plot(1:10)
dev.off()
then in my LaTeX file do something like:
\begin{figure}[h!]
\centering
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[width = .8\textwidth]{foo.eps}
\end{center}
\caption{My Caption}
\label{fig:foo}
\end{figure}
