defined classes in cfagent.conf not present from cfrun

I've got a weird problem with cfengine, and I'm curious if anyone else
has encountered it, or if it's a 'feature' and if so how I work around
it. I define lots of classes/groups in my cfagent.conf file, mostly
based on if a file exists, and then various actions occur based on if a
system is in a given class. For example, if the system is a webserver
then there's a section in 'processes:' that'll restart a dead webserver
(and so on). This works fine running cfagent locally on the command
line, but when run remotely via cfrun none of the classes/groups I
define in cfagent.conf are defined when cfagent remotely runs.

So I've got in my cfagent.conf something like:

        is_webserver = ( "/usr/bin/test -f /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf" )

when  i run cfagent on the command line (with arguments -v --no-splay )
on the local host I get:

Defined Classes = ( ... is_webserver ... )
But if I run it remotely with 'cfrun somehost -- -v' the is_webserver
does not show up in Defined Classes.

This is on cfengine version 2.1.11.

Any clue??
