Running on rotated screen

I want to build a debian installer CD that will be used on a device with a screen that is rotated. I've found that I can boot a debian LiveCD and (while craning my neck) open a shell and run "xrandr -o left". After that the display is 'correct' and I can run /usr/sbin/debian-installer-launcher and d-I also displays 'correctly'.

I am hoping to avoid launching the Live image. But if I boot directly to the d-I GUI there is no xrandr command. Is there a udeb package w/ xrandr? Is there a boot option to start the X server rotated?

Thanks in advance.
