Installation fails on string comparison with "in"

Hi, just tried out Cobra and so far it's a wonderful experience.

The only downside is that I have to compile from the Snapshot with the "-copy-core" directive, since I have been unable to install the compiler. The installer fails thus:

The version says 0.9.4 but I downloaded 0.9.6. (I have tried it with actual 0.9.4 as well, with the same result.)
