The source code for MCL's SORT is included on the MCL cd-rom, in
 "Additional MCL source code:lib:sort.lisp"

There's probably another implementation somewhere in 
 "User contributed code:CMU Common Lisp:"

Since this is a general lisp question, you might want to also ask
the comp.lang.lisp newsgroup, which covers a lot more territory
than just the comp.lang.lisp.mcl.
