    The trick *there* is to make sure you use an app that doesn't a) mung
    the EXIF data, and/or b) decode, rotate, and then re-encode - you'd
    stand to lose much quality.

    ImageMagick's convert utility - with the -rotate command - seems to
    retain EXIF & quality aspects of the original photo.  And it's fast and
    easy to wrap scripts around.

jhead is a very useful utility for this purpose.
