I solved the problem, and the solution is indeed boost::function_type.

The typedef in question looks like this:

namespace ft = boost::function_types;
namespace mpl = boost::mpl;

typedef ft::components<Signature>::types SigComp;

typedef mpl::advance<
                mpl::begin< SigComp >::type, mpl::int_< 1 >
typedef ft::function_type<
                mpl::erase< SigComp, ClassPos >::type

Quite easy once one knows how.
The problem is that the function_type documentation is not very helpful.
I am missing at least some basic examples in the reference.
I found the necessary "examples" inside the Test suite.
It would suffice if some of the assertions from the test cases where
used to explain what each meta function is supposed to do.

for example I would have gasped the usage of function_type imeadiately
if there had been an example like

ft::function_type< mpl::vector<int,int,int> >::type
// type is a function type with the signature int (int, int)

or even more importantly for components:

class C
typedef C (C::*c_mem_func_ptr)(int) const;
ft::components<c_mem_func_ptr>::types // equals: mpl::vector<C,C const

Hope that somebody may find this useful
