I am planning to port musl libc to FreeBSD userspace in addition to our native c library.
Is it really need for community?

Sometimes you create a need by planting a seed. :) So, go ahead and port musl (I don't know if it's already in ports though. You might check.)

BTW: Welcome to the FreeBSD forum.

The "Why" is probably that musl libc has a strong dependency on both the Linux kernel (version 2.6 and higher) as well as a dependency on the GNU compiler Neither of those features makes it an attractive project to port to FreeBSD. (see http://www.musl-libc.org/faq.html)
