[bug-gnu-libiconv] conversion of mathematical angled brackets from UTF-8

If I run:

echo "⟨http://www.gnu.org⟩" | iconv -f UTF-8 -t ISO-8859-1//TRANSLIT

with iconv, I am seeing:

iconv: (stdin):1:0: cannot convert

The angled brackets don't seem to get mapped to < and > which I was hoping they would.
This shows up in practice for me when trying to do 'man groff' on my z/OS system and it is trying to convert the UTF-8 code to ISO-8859-1. 

What's the best way to request a new 'approximation' (or do I have a different issue)? 

I am seeing this with a build that appears to be from March 31st 2007 on z/OS and January 22, 2006 on a Mac. So perhaps I just need a newer drop? The z/OS version is built from: https://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/libiconv/libiconv-1.17.tar.gz

Thanks, Mike Fulton
