Not always.  That (featurep 'cl) returns nil is normal.

What I do to get a Lisp backtrace usually is:

・Do `M-x toggle-debug-on-error RET' in order to set
  the `debug-on-error' variable to t.
・Do something to make an error happen.
・Copy the backtrace and type `C-]' to quit the debugger.
・If the backtrace contains a byte-code, that is not human
  readable, load some .el module(s), not .elc, and do it again.
