Sorry for the late answer (a short vacation in the black forrest ;-)
I pretty much took the copy-and-paste aproach (as i said, i'm no LISP
expert) -- here's my setup for cmucl on a recent Debian system:

 1) created a directory '/usr/share/common-lisp/source/cmn' and moved
   all cmn files into that.

 2) added a system description file '/usr/share/common-lisp/systems/cmn.system'
    with the following content:

;;; -*- Syntax: Ansi-Common-Lisp; Base: 10; Mode: lisp; Package: cl-user -*-

(in-package :cl-user)

(mk:defsystem :cmn
 :source-pathname  #p"cl-library:cmn;"
 :source-extension "lisp"
    ((:file "cmn-all.lisp"))
          (provide :cmn)
          (pushnew :cmn cl:*features*))

  :documentation "This is the Common Music Notation (cmn) package.")
 3) As the system superuser, started up cmucl (called 'lisp' on Debian
    systems) and issued a '(require 'cmn)' which will trigger compilation
    of the files (this needs to be done as root since the process will
    create files in the newly created directory).
