This is not something you can reliably do from GTK. The system menu and
titlebar is a function of the running window manager, not the app. You
would need to send hints to the window manager that you would not like
this menu displayed. I'm not sure I know of any window managers that
currently allow an app to disable that system menu, though.
Also on many window managers, right-clicking the title bar might not do
anything anyway, and on some it might be configured to mean "roll-up."
So things in the Unix world, thankfully, are not quite like on MS
Windows. It's an interesting and diverse place.
