this is configurable from php.ini, and described in there:

variables_order = "EGPCS"
; This directive describes the order in which PHP registers
; GET, POST, Cookie, Environment and Built-in variables (G, P,
; C, E & S respectively, often referred to as EGPCS or GPC).
; Registration is done from left to right, newer values override
; older values.

Also, consider turning register_globals off.
