Yes, variadic templates make it easy; e.g. this alteration to the end of
your code works for me with clang++:

template< class T, class Result, class... Args >
struct has_mem_fn_helper< T, Result ( Args... ) >
    static const bool value =
        (sizeof( is_dummy_result_t(
           declval< derived_t<T>>().xxx(declval<Args>()...)) ) ==
         sizeof( no_type ))
     && (sizeof( is_convertible< Result >::apply(
           declval< derived_t<T>>().xxx(declval<Args>()...)) ) ==
          sizeof( yes_type ));
    typedef has_mem_fn_helper type;

struct X
{ };

struct Y
{ int xxx(int); };

struct Z
{ int xxx(int, int); };

int main(int /*argc*/, char* /*argv*/[])
    BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT(!(has_mem_fn< X >::value));
    BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT( (has_mem_fn< Y >::value));
    BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT( (has_mem_fn< Y, int ( int ) >::value));
    BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT( (has_mem_fn< Y, long ( short ) >::value));
    BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT(!(has_mem_fn< Y, int ( void* ) >::value));
    BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT(!(has_mem_fn< Y, void* ( int ) >::value));
    BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT(!(has_mem_fn< Z, int ( int ) >::value));
    BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT(!(has_mem_fn< Z, int ( void* ) >::value));
    BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT( (has_mem_fn< Z, int ( int, long ) >::value));
    BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT(!(has_mem_fn< Z, int ( void*, int ) >::value));
    return 0;
