Scribus is meant to be able to do this. There is a fix for rotated text
frames with outline conversion in 1.1.5cvs. Other than that I can't
really remember of other patches in 1.1.5cvs, but there might be.
Conversion to outline certainly works just fine here.

Probably an issue with the configure/install scripts. Anyones else got
this issue on a Mac?
