choose Transform from the toolbox and double-click the icon, then select
Rotation. You have now a cursor that looks a little bit like a recycling symbol
(two arc arrows). When you start rotating the selected area, there's a new
window that indicates by how much you have rotated (gimp 1.0.1 :-( at work).

If you use any of the newer versions, there's a more advanced window once you
have started rotating. You can even enter the value of how many degrees you
want to turn.

Hope this helps,
