AnnotationDbi is in development and is not needed for AnnBuilder 1.14.0,
which is the version that is to be used for R-2.5.0.

All one needs to do to install a particular package for bioconductor is
to use biocLite('packagename').  In this case, biocLite('AnnBuilder')
would have been all that was needed.  As for ABPrimer.pdf, make sure
that you are using the correct version of that document.  In particular,
you need that document to match the AnnBuilder version that you are
using.  The correct version for AnnBuilder 1.14.0 does not mention

Hope that helps.
