I don't think that matters here: in "TeX + dvips + GS" mode, TeXShop
doesn't use epstopdf, and uses instead the script /usr/local/bin/
simpdftex which doesn't call gs in the same way than epstopdf.
my $pipe = "$GS -q -sDEVICE=pdfwrite $GSOPTS -
" -sOutputFile=$OutputFilename - -c quit";
while simpdftex says
#distillerprog="/usr/local/bin/gs -dCompatibility=1.3 -q -
dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -sOutputFile=- -c save pop"
Hence you have to add "-dAutoRotatePages=/None" to the list of
options when calling gs. I don't know how this could be done.
Possibly by using the option --distiller of simpdftex.
You may try in TeXShop's pref Engine > "TeX + dvips + distiller" to
replace, for example,
altpdflatex --maxpfb --distiller="/usr/local/bin/gs -
dCompatibility=1.3 -q -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -
dAutoRotatePages=/None -sOutputFile=- -c save pop"
