You'll at least need to have CONFIG_IP_NF_IPTABLES y or m to build it
into the kernel or as a module. In order to use the basic
functionality in the BLFS bootscript, you probably also need
CONFIG_IP_NF_CONNTRACK, CONFIG_IP_NF_FILTER and
CONFIG_IP_NF_TARGET_LOG. Maybe CONFIG_IP_NF_FTP, too.

Really, though, you can just build the whole section as modules if you
don't mind using a little extra disk space. Then, you can just load
the modules as they're needed. The BLFS bootscript already loads a
pretty minimal set that you should be able to get by with.
