The builtin rotate module can rotate about any vector which goes
through the origin.  If you want to pivot around something not on the
origin, then you'll have to do additional translations.

Here is a "one-liner" module to do it for you.  just specify the pivot point p.

module rotate_about(a, v, p=[0,0,0]) {
     translate(p) rotate(a,v) translate(-p) children();
