Err, the link say that you must specify:
1. Version of compiler
2. Path to compiler
for each version you use. I don't know how to say it differently.

In what what it "doesn't work". What's your current user-config.jam, what's your
command line, what are the command lines produces by Boost.Build, and how is it wrong?

I've just removed the other one as having no use and confusing everybody.

If you don't say anything about gcc in user-config.jam, then the gcc
from PATH will be used -- that's the only one that can be found.
If you want to have tow gcc versions, you need to configure them
in user-config.jam, given two different versions to them and specifying
different commands, like:
using gcc : XXX : /path/to/cygwin/g++ ;
using gcc : XXX_mingw : /path/to/mingw/g++ ;

You specify the command used to compile C++, like:
(or however the binary is called in 9.0)
