It seems that it may....

Option "RandRRotation" "boolean"

    Enable rotation support for the XRandR extension. This allows use of the
    XRandR X server extension for configuring the screen orientation through
    rotation. This feature is supported on GeForce2 or better hardware using
    depth 24. This requires an X.Org X 6.8.1 or newer X server. This feature
    does not work with hardware overlays, and emulated overlays will be used
    instead at a substantial performance penalty. See Appendix U for
    Default: off.
