Which implementation are you using?
SLIME on SBCL can give you source location,
even inside internal functions (from labels or flet or lambda).
Be sure to compile with (safety 3) (debug 3) (speed 1) or so.

That said, this is not the most appropriate forum for this question.
After you try the above, ask for help on #lisp, stackoverflow,
comp.lang.lisp, etc.
