I believe OzTeX looks at the dvi output, and the rotating package works 
with (postscript) dvi-specials, at least when in old-latex mode with 
dvips post-processing. Note that this statements has two assumptions, 
one of which I'm not too sure about.

How did you generate using TeXShop (dvips+Ghostscript or pdflatex)?
Have you tried to post-process the dvi-file? (to either ps of pdf)?
