Gimp to the rescue!  (At least, if you're happy with a bitmap, rather
than a vector image.  Of course, I think you can do rotated text vector
using PostScript)

Anyway... from the Gimp toolbox, select
"Xtns" -> "Script-Fu" -> "Logos" -> "Text Circle"

Names and location may vary, depending on the version of Gimp you're
using.  (I'm using the latest that comes with Debian or Ximian/Gnome)
