I'm ever trying to slimming down my kernel on my small headless servers (web-/mail-/nameserver) on practically same hw.

What do I NEED enabled in kernel?

ie. afaik my ssh-key for login is RSA, but I see that's not enabled in kernel.

Does Apache, Postfix, Dovecot Bind et al require any specific implementations to be enabled in kernel?

Cryptography options in the kernel are solely for things like drivers that need such code within the kernel. They are not used with things like SSH as that's provided in userland libraries like OpenSSL. Basically you should not manually set any cryptography options in the kernel unless Portage tells you it's necessary for a package to work.
