You need boost::bind(sender, x), assuming that sender is a void function
taking an int.

Hmm... the examples in the documentation bind and call on a single line in
order to demonstrate the effect of the various possibilities. It can be
confusing. :-) Your case is covered by the first sentence:

"bind(f, 1, 2) will produce a "nullary" function object that takes no
arguments and returns f(1, 2)."
