As of 1.2.1 the changes mentioned in the page are already included but disable by a nasty little "return" at the beginning of the orientationChanged method.

Here are the new procedure to enable pdfviewer's built-in change of orientation:

1.Run cd /usr/palm/applications
2.Run tar tzf com.palm.app.pdfviewer.tar.gz
3.Edit com.palm.app.pdfviewer/app/controllers/document-assistant.js
4.look for the orientationChanged: (line 221 in 1.2.1) and remove the return; at the beginning of the method
   orientationChanged: function(orientation) {
      return;                // <--- remove that line
      if (this.currentOrientation === orientation)
5.Save the changes
6.[Re]start the pdfviewer and voila!

Note - comment by dbtrade :I had to use: tar xzf com.palm.app.pdfviewer.tar.gz

In order for the tar file to actually extract the files''
