Line 214:

# By setting this variable, Gate can be run from any directory
if (${?GATEHOME}) then
   echo "GATEHOME is set to ${GATEHOME}"
   setenv GATEHOME `pwd`
   echo "WARNING: variable GATEHOME is not set"
   echo "         it will be assumed to be the current directory"
   echo "         ==> " ${GATEHOME}

Yes ! G4INSTALL is the directory where you installed Geant4 and should 
countain the G4 scripte file env.csh. When you run env_gate.csh, it will 
also run $G4INSTALL/env.csh:

source $G4INSTALL"/env.csh"

G4VERSION refers to the version of your G4. If you installed 
geant4.7.0.p01 (the required version for gate v 2.2.0), you should set 
G4VERSION to 7.0.
