Take a look at "Image -> Transform" and see if one of those work for
Also, in the Tools menu, there is the "Rotate the layer or
Selection". Just click it, and then click inside your picture. I use
it to straighten a picture's horizon. I first use the "Measure
distances and angles" to find how far it is off, and then use the
value in the status bar in the rotate dialog.
As far as I know, none of these are automatic though. You could
checkout the GIMP registry plug-in at, http://registry.gimp.org/, to
see if there is anything.
