help.search("kernel density") reports

KernSec(GenKern)        Univariate kernel density estimate
KernSur(GenKern)        Bivariate kernel density estimation
bkde(KernSmooth)        Compute a Binned Kernel Density Estimate
bkde2D(KernSmooth)      Compute a 2D Binned Kernel Density Estimate
dpik(KernSmooth)        Select a Bandwidth for Kernel Density
kde2d(MASS)             Two-Dimensional Kernel Density Estimation

amongst others, and package sm also has a user-friendly selection.

So, apart from point out alternatives I wanted to point out how easy it 
was to find the information originally requested.
