Which options you select are based on your hardware (no need to build in support for hardware if you don't have it) and the features you want for the kernel. In your case, if you want to build a firewall machine you might want to enable some of the advanced packet routing and congestion queuing functionality. You'll also need sure to build support for hardware you do have, e.g. your Ethernet chips, either directly into the kernel or as modules to be loaded on boot.
