Use a rectangular drill. :)

No really, you will need to define it as a routed hole in a mechanical note.
I don't know of any PCB tool that can show rectangular holes and have the
drill data mean something useful.

I use a drill size of 1 mil and a note indicating that a slot is routed
wherever they see a drill of 1mil. Since my places can't make a 1 mil hole,
this flags an error and gets them to notice my special instructions. The
automatically know which way to align the slot because the pad I use is
rectangular. Yeah, maybe there are a few assumptions made, but people can do
that when then actually think about something.
