It means that your shell program is the program called "tcsh".  It is
common enough that it has a Wikipedia page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tcsh

If you search for "set PATH in tcsh", the second hit is
http://kb.iu.edu/data/acar.html
which says

    To modify your path

    If you are using csh or tcsh, at the shell prompt, enter:
    setenv PATH $PATH\:/dir/path

Assuming that your git executable is located at
/usr/local/git/bin/git, this means you should do

    setenv PATH $PATH\:/usr/local/git/bin

(The PATH is a list of directories in which to search for program
names such as "git".)

You can tell if /usr/local/git/bin/git is correct by

    ls -l /usr/local/git/bin/git

If that isn't right, a brute-force way to search for git is

    find / -name git

That will probably generate many lines of error messages, but among
them will be the proper path name of every file and directory named
"git".
