SUMMARY: system boots OK, but /tmp not writable by world

Thanks for the helps everyone.  The general advice was
that the /tmp mount point needed chmod 1777 run on
it, but it had to be unmounted to do that.  I tried init S
from run level 3 to umount /tmp but it could not.

I noticed the chmod command we want exists in
/etc/rc2.d/S05RMTMPFILES , but somehow it
isn't being run or /tmp is already mounted by
that point.

I decided to edit S01MOUNTFSYS and add the
chmod 1777 /tmp
prior to the mountall line.  That worked and now
we have a system booting fine and sevices needing
/tmp can get up.  Problem resolved.
