unfortunately, it's unlikely to work with hyperref, given that
cite.sty (which long ago superseded it) doesn't work with hyperref.

citesort is _so _ old, and _so_ inferior to cite.sty, that i moved it
some time ago to the `obsolete' area of ctan (as you see above).

i guess the recommendation remains to use natbib sort&compress option.
