Because it doesn't exist in rspec-2! See http://github.com/rspec/rspec-core/blob/master/Upgrade.markdown for more info.

I've re-added it for the next rspec-2 release (2.0.2) with a deprecation notice, so other folks trying this out won't be surprised after that.

Use rspec/core/rake_task instead (and RSpec::Core::RakeTask in the Rakefile).

HTH,
David
