Open gconf-editor, go to apps -> metacity -> general, find button_layout, and reverse the order.

You have to use metacity!.. Then you can change the order of the elements in the window.

For that matter, if you're using Emerald as your Window Decorator (because you're using Compiz and shun Metacity) you can go to System -> Preferences -> Emerald Theme Manager -> Edit Themes -> Titlebar and change the layout options.
