You're absolutely right that shooting in RAW gives you incredible flexibility when it comes to fixing white balance in post-processing. However, if you want to try and get it right in camera, you can always shoot a custom white balance by shooting a white balance card under the same lighting conditions as your subject. I can't think of a DSLR that doesn't support custom WB and many of the more expensive P&S cameras do as well.

And white balance cards can be had for super cheap and many are small enough to carry around in a camera bag.
