I'm not sure exactly what you are trying to do but you but you only need emacs
22 on your host machine, if you have gdb on your remote machines, and you use
a recent version of Tramp, as explained in the Tramp manual:

  With TRAMP, it is possible to
  debug programs on remote hosts.  You can call `gdb' with a remote file

       M-x gdb <RET>
       Run gdb (like this): gdb --annotate=3 /ssh:host:~/myprog <RET>
