The only one I know of is PixView from Pixel Translations, Inc.
It runs on Win9x and (probably) NT.

Most other applications (commercial or free) simply treat TIFF 
images as if they had TIFFTAG_ORIENTATION set to 1 (the default)
or map orientations values from 5 to 8 somehow into the range
1 to 4 or do "what they mean the user would accept".

You could get a PostScript procset containing a tiffshow.ps script
that works with Ghostscript and does it conforming to the TIFF V6 spec
(at least I hope so). Drop me an e-mail if you are interested.
