Did you google "axis angle matrix" and look at the first hit (wikipedia)?

Rotation matrix from axis and angle

For some applications, it is helpful to be able to make a rotation with a given axis. Given a unit vector u = (uxuyuz), where ux2 + uy2 + uz2 = 1, the matrix for a rotation by an angle of ? about an axis in the direction of u is

EDIT: For a 4x4 matrix the bottom right corner will be 1 and the other entries on the 4th row and column will be 0.

Get a hold of reflector so you can see how the Xna framework does it...

public static Matrix CreateFromAxisAngle(Vector3 axis, float angle)
{
Matrix matrix;
float x = axis.X;
float y = axis.Y;
float z = axis.Z;
float num2 = (float) Math.Sin((double) angle);
float num = (float) Math.Cos((double) angle);
float num11 = x * x;
float num10 = y * y;
float num9 = z * z;
float num8 = x * y;
float num7 = x * z;
float num6 = y * z;
matrix.M11 = num11 + (num * (1f - num11));
matrix.M12 = (num8 - (num * num8)) + (num2 * z);
matrix.M13 = (num7 - (num * num7)) - (num2 * y);
matrix.M14 = 0f;
matrix.M21 = (num8 - (num * num8)) - (num2 * z);
matrix.M22 = num10 + (num * (1f - num10));
matrix.M23 = (num6 - (num * num6)) + (num2 * x);
matrix.M24 = 0f;
matrix.M31 = (num7 - (num * num7)) + (num2 * y);
matrix.M32 = (num6 - (num * num6)) - (num2 * x);
matrix.M33 = num9 + (num * (1f - num9));
matrix.M34 = 0f;
matrix.M41 = 0f;
matrix.M42 = 0f;
matrix.M43 = 0f;
matrix.M44 = 1f;
return matrix;
}


Don't forget this depends on the axis parameter being unit length.
