That's rather odd--I'm using the latest version of Gmail available in the Market (v2.3.5) and do have that option--that said, Google seems to have made it explicitly difficult to set the thing to not ring when an email comes in (or at least non-intuitive, compared to earlier versions).
There IS a menu option to turn off notifications altogether (both ringing notifications AND in the status bar)--consists of Menu > More > Settings > Account Settings (select yer email address, if you have multiple Gmail accounts, you'll need to do this for each one), scroll down to Notification Settings, uncheck "Email Notifications".
If you merely want to turn off ringtone
notifications for email (as opposed to all notifications--that is, if you don't want the thing blooping at you when you have new mail but DO want the status bar to indicate when you have mail) this gets more complex: Menu > More > Settings > Account Settings (per account) > scroll down to Notification Settings > Labels to Notify > Inbox > set Ringtone to "Silent". (There is also a checkbox for "Email notifications" in that same section that you can use to turn off the status bar notification--if for some reason you want it to bloop at you but NOT notify you in the status bar.)
(I am in the "Non Blooping For Email" camp, and with the newest version of Gmail this gave me minor fits until I played with it a bit and found out how to do it
