$LOAD_PATH problem when creating rake task

I’m trying to put together some rake tasks to run my specs, but
require ‘spec/rake/spectask’ complains “no such file”. I’ve gem
installed rspec on my Ubuntu box and looks like it’s locate in
/var/lib/gems/1.8/gems/rspec-1.1.4/, which is not in load path

irb> $LOAD_PATH
=> ["/usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8",
“/usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/i486-linux”,
“/usr/local/lib/site_ruby/1.8/i386-linux”, “/usr/local/lib/site_ruby”,
“/usr/lib/ruby/1.8”, “/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/i486-linux”,
“/usr/lib/ruby/1.8/i386-linux”, “.”]

Now what? What would be a kosher way around this, maybe ln -s
something somewhere? I can see the issue being discussed though,

Did you require rubygems first?

Maybe just a stupid comment, if so, please disregard it.

the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent
disinclination to do so.
