realtek.pxe (which handles 8139 as well as 8169-based cards) is what you want.  
(rtl8169.pxe will also work as a built target, and will give you the exact 
same binary.)

As a side point: only use ".kpxe" with the "undionly" driver; for loading the 
native iPXE driver you want realtek.pxe rather than realtek.kpxe.
