I've got setuptools set up and have read through the list of what's in /etc/setuptools.d

I'm interested in installing timeconfig as well, but I only need the TUI version (no GUI). Which RPMs do I need? (I'll be including these RPMs in a CentOS ISO installation)

You need the package system-config-date.

In CentOS it is not installed by default but you can install it by typing

sudo yum install system-config-date 

and that should get you the tui tool you need which you can run by typing

sudo system-config-date

If you can make a reasonable guess as to where a command is located, yum can tell you what package it's in.

# yum resolvedep /usr/bin/timeconfig
No Package Found for /usr/bin/timeconfig

# yum resolvedep /usr/sbin/timeconfig
0:system-config-date-1.8.12-4.el5.noarch

Instead of yum resolvedep you can use yum provides. It may take a while to populate all the file lists but it's very handy.

# yum provides *bin/timeconfig
Loaded plugins: downloadonly, rhnplugin

Repo        : rhel-x86_64-server-updates-5
