 Warning: ONCONFIG dump directory (DUMPDIR) '/tmp' has insecure permissions

This means /tmp has 777 as a permission bits. You could ignore this , just make sure sticky bit is set for /tmp.

 13:40:50  listener-thread: err = -25572: oserr = 99: errstr = : Network driver cannot      bind a name to the port.

As for this one, please check if the port in question(informix DB port) is already used or not via this command

netstat -tulpn

It will show the port occupied with details showing pid and program name if root ran it.

These are general debugging steps as per the error log
