How did you install the product? Was it installation "from the box" (doing it as
user root, user informix:informix known on the system, running it by install
script) or you copy (using tar or something else) whole $INFORMIXDIR from other
location?

I think that you problem is with permissions on directories and files. Problem
can be produced by copying the product from other location or not using proper
installation procedure. Post for example output from

        cd $INFROMIXDIR/bin
        ls -al on*
