Your system has probably an unusually restrictive umask. You can set umask within MHonArc with the UMASK resource.

But why would you want the permissions 777? Perm. 644 makes more sense to me.

If I were you, I'd try replacing

    -fileperms 777


    -umask 022

That results probably in the file permissions 644 (with the exception of .mhonarc.db, but that file should not be web readable).
