On our setup, we have created a separate tools child-channel,
containing the following packages from the spacewalk repo:

rhn-setup rhn-check rhn-client-tools rhnlib rhnsd spacewalk-koan
rhncfg rhncfg-actions rhncfg-client rhncfg-management yum-rhn-plugin

These are fetched via lftp and pushed to the channel using rhnpush.

An option is to create repodata on it and use spacewalk-repo-sync instead.

Then you can activate the tools child-channel within kickstart profile
management (Operating System Sub Tab) which will be visible to the
client during kickstart process.

Best Regards
