1. Make a spline at the angle you want and position it correctly. Take note of the degrees.
2. Set it's pivot to one of the end points.
3. Place your object in the correct position.
4. Align it's pivot to the spline.
5. Type in the degrees you noted earlier.

Actually, my directions are a bit back to front. But that doesn't matter, it seems a bit funny aligning to spline.
Maybe you mean path deform?
If you need an object pasted flat on a surface you can use normal align (press f1, it'll show you the icon and give you directions).

You could use the Normal Align tool to make the irregular object flush to the box according to the side you align with and then make the corners of each object flush by using the snap tool with snapping set to 'vertex' and snapping the irregular object's corner to the box object's corner.

Check out Miauu's scriptpacks .....he has a ton of transform/rotate/snap/align methods, unlike ADick, Miauu recognizes the need to optimize and improve workflow with the artist's needs foremost in the development, you can communicate directly with him and openly discuss the tools ...oh and he doesn't have his nose plugged into a shareholders ass :)
