I've tried similar things in the past to no avail. The one thing you
can do is check to find out what the orientation currently is
and accomodate for it in your drawing routines.  sorry I don't have the
lisp code for checking handy, but here's how to check in pascal:
    MyPrRotn:   TGetRotnBlk;
    MyPrRotn.iOpCode:= getRotnOp;
    MyPrRotn.iError:= 0;
    MyPrRotn.lReserved:= 0;
    MyPrRotn.hPrint:= MAINPRINT;
    MyPrRotn.fLandscape:= false;
    MyPrRotn.bXtra:= 0;
    if (PrError = noErr) and (MyPrRotn.iError = noErr) then
        Landscape:= MyPrRotn.fLandscape
    else Landscape:= false;
