I meant the name used in the target path: .../bin.v2/.../gcc-nnn/...

My suggestion was out-dated. There is no longer a mingw feature.
Embarrassingly enough, I was the one who removed it.
Instead, use <toolset>gcc-10.0.1,<target-os>windows:<cxxflags>....
I thought I PRed all the uses of mingw before I made the
