I use the 'Rotation' option to get the text aligned with the axis at the momet, eg:
xlabel('Frequency (MHz)','Rotation',-10)
but it is a bit time consuming, especially when you rotate the figure back anf forth to get a nice wiev.
Surely there must be a way to automatically rotate the labels so that they align with the direction of the actual axis? Maybe not actively when rotating but atleast with a command when using "surfc" for example...

trial and error is the method of determining -10 surfc is just an example...

You can get a handle to the 3d rotation, so if you determine the appropriate rotation (e.g. with the output of view), you can set the ActionPostCallback function.
h=rotate3d;
set(h,'ActionPostCallback',@myfunction);
