The function in question was the nonstandard strtoull_l, not strtoull.
In the case of the former, attempting to import it from FreeBSD would
definitely not be the right solution; you'd have to import a large
part of the FreeBSD locale framework it depends on, in which case
you'd be giving very inconsistent behavior with the rest of musl, or
you'd have to strip the code that's using the locale and make
strtoull_l ignore it, in which case the outcome would be identical to
using the existing version in musl, but with a lot of duplicate code
