Rake spec does not run specs -- just writes to spec.opts directory

I am having an issue on my integration server currently. When I run
rake spec locally my specs run and all is good but when I run rake
spec in on my integration box I get the following output

Options written to spec/spec.opts. You can now use these options with:
spec --options spec/spec.opts

When I run spec --options spec.opts I get the same message.
script/spec and others all do the same , if I try to target a specific
spec file again the same thing

This is my setup

CentOS release 5.2 (Final)
ruby 1.8.6 (2007-09-24 patchlevel 111) [i386-linux]
gem version 1.3.5

gem list - http://pastie.org/645449

any thoughts would be much appreciated as this is pretty annoying.
