Again, I'm not following.  Does %include simply not work anywhere but in
%pre?  I cannot find a single bit of documentation that says word one
about that.

%include (optional)
Use the %include /path/to/file command to include the contents of
another file in the kickstart file as though the contents were at the
location of the %include command in the kickstart file. 

And that doesn't explain why I can %include a file on the DVD but cannot
after copying that file to /tmp

Except it isn't, as I mentioned in my original post.

I'm aware of that.  But, again, as stated in my original post, when I
copy files from /tmp to /mnt/sysimage/tmp and then refer to /tmp in
%post, the %include does not work.
