Afaik it's not exposed in the tweak tool UI. Just set the key
"/apps/metacity/general/focus_mode" to either "sloppy" or "mouse" (there
used to be a difference between these two but I don't see it anymore in
E.g. from the command line:
gconftool-2 --type string --set /apps/metacity/general/focus_mode sloppy
Or set it graphically via gconf-editor but this will require installing
