I did a little work in this area, relieving GenomicRanges of dependency on

For your example, which does not run (?), I would suggest
a) avoiding the use of the old environments like hgu95av2PATH2PROBE,
this with AnnotationDbi::select calls
b) replace the KEGG.db invocations with KEGGREST equivalents.

As an example, using AnnotationDbi, hgu95av2.db, and KEGGREST

> select(hgu95av2.db, "JUNB", keytype="SYMBOL", columns=c("PROBEID",
'select()' returned 1:many mapping between keys and columns
1   JUNB 2049_s_at 04380
2   JUNB  32786_at 04380
> keggFind("pathway", "04380")
"Osteoclast differentiation"
