Not at all, you have to solve it yourself.

So reading from you post you have a class you can't (or don't want to)
change, that needs arguments in the ctor. You can make a Singleton from
that class using multiple inheritance.

     class a_singleton : public boost::singleton< a_singleton >,
         public my_class
         a_singleton(boost::restricted) : my_class( /* args go here */ )

Parameterizing the static 'instance' method of a classic Singleton take
is a bad idea IMO, because it causes redundancy all over the place.
