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" (http://latex-beamer.sourceforge.net) and compile my 
presentation with pdflatex. This works great!
