I have a book that has a rotated landscape master page and uses system
variables that are on other pages, but headers & footers are not
rotated. I have rotated only the main text flow frame by selecting it on
the master page and then selecting Graphics > Rotate (Rotate by 90 deg
clockwise).

Tex,

It sounds like you're trying to create a landscape paper size. You don't

need to do that. You need to create a new master page and rotate it 
(Format > Customize Layout > Rotate), then add a text frame to it as 
well as header/footer frames if you need those. Then apply that master 
to your body page.

Caveats: If your rotated page's flow is the same as your body flow, then

future edits can screw up which content appears on the landscape page. 
It is often best to create a separate file for the landscape material; 
you can make it act like part of the previous and following chapter 
files by setting all their numbering properties correctly.

Alternatively, if you stay in a single chapter file, you can put a 
distinctive pgf tag on your landscape material and use the Apply Master 
Pages feature to ensure that content is given the right master page.

HTH,
