More specifically, you need CONFIG_IP_NF_IPTABLES . In the ncurses
menuconfig, there are a number of options in a sub-menu (Netfilter
Configuration). Make sure you have it selected from there. There are
also a number of other options there that will probably be of interest
(namely CONNTRACK, and some others).

good times,
