That developer probably does not have the rspec gem installed on
his/her system. In the next release, when this happens, you'll get a
warning message (not an error, so that you can still run other rake
tasks) that will tell you this, and instruct you to install the rspec

In the mean time, installing the rspec-rails and rspec gems on that
system should solve the problem.
