I'm afraid I don't really know where to start.  The error is very unusual
as it is just the most basic initialization step, before even any attempt
is made to contact the database or anything like that.

Errors formatted by the Oracle error reporting functions normally start
with ORA-, but in this case we don't even have error report services working
yet, and so just have a raw 32bit integer status code.

I read through the OCIEnvCreate() docs for Oracle 9 OCI and it does not
give any clues about what might cause a failure.

I really suspect it is some sort of runtime problem ... perhaps picking
up the wrong oci shared library or something like that.

I'm sorry I'm not more help.
