I just got an 11" MBA and am amazed and annoyed, that contextual menus don't come up when holding the trackpad 'button' down on links in web browsers. I can get the menus to come up when I do this in combination with the Control key but, that seems counter to using a laptop. I've sifted through the preferences and can't find where to turn this on.

You have to enable right clicking in the System Preferences > Trackpad.
Or are there NO options of doing that there?

There aren't any options there for doing that.

Look for "Secondary Click":

That's it! Thank you. I probably wouldn't have ever found that, since I upgraded to Lion only because I needed a new Mac.
