There will probably never be such a beast, as that implies the usage of 
the affy package. Instead, you should be using the oligo package and 
pdInfoBuilder. For that you will need the CIF and BPMAP files from Affy, 
and something like

pkg <- new("AffyTilingPDInfoPkgSeed", version = "0.0.1", author = "You", 
email = "you at yours.com", biocViews = "AnnotationData", genomebuild = 
"thegenomebuild", bpmapFile = <name of bpmap file>, cifFile = <name of 
cif file>)


And then install using R CMD INSTALL <the package name>. You don't 
mention your OS, so that might simply entail running the above at a 
terminal prompt (if on Linux), or if you are on Windows or MacOS, you 
will need to get set up to build packages. See the R FAQ for either OS 
for further info about that.
