I've written a custom task named update_fbml.rake as follows:
namespace :remote do
  task :update_fbml => :environment do
    require "application"
    controller = ApplicationController.new
    controller.mass_update_fbml
    # `script/runner "require #{RAILS_ROOT}/app/controllers/application;
ApplicationController.do_stuff"`
  end
end

This executes on my local machine but when I deploy to my build server
and type 'rake remote:update_fbml' it fails with "Don't know how to
build task 'remote:update_fbml'".

Any suggestions?

Make sure all your 'require' directives actually exist on the build
server.

If one of the .rake files can't load a required file (e.g. a gem)
then it won't actually get parsed properly by rake but you won't see
a failure message either. It just gets quietly dumped.
