Topic: Rails requires RubyGems >= 1.3.2.Please install RubyGems and try again

I've been trying to deploy a Ruby on Rails application and everything works fine until it tries to run the DB migration scripts, at which point it fails:  *** [err :: test-app1] Rails requires RubyGems >= 1.3.2. Please install RubyGems and try again: http://rubygems.rubyforge.org *** [err :: test-app1]  ** [out :: test-app1] (in /filestore/rails/test/releases/20101117194037)     command finished failed: "sh -c 'cd /var/rails/test/releases/20101117194037 && rake RAILS_ENV=production db:util:migrate'" on test-app1

If I attempt to run the rake command manually to run the DB scripts, I see the same error:
[root@test-app1 current]# rake RAILS_ENV=production db:util:migrate
(in /filestore/rails/test/releases/20101118220117)
Rails requires RubyGems >= 1.3.2. Please install RubyGems and try again: http://rubygems.rubyforge.org

Here's some more info:

I've done many different things to no avail.  I removed RubyGems and reinstalled it (1.3.1, 1.3.2), I upgraded my version of Ruby to Enterprise 1.8.7.

Could someone please help me out?

Thank you,
Franck
