[R] computing sum of indicator variables

My problem is as follows:
i is a list of integers of variable length. Now I want to compute a new vector/array that contains 1's at the positions indicated in i. For example:
c(2, 4) -> c(0, 1, 0, 1)

Using something like
i = i - c(0, i[2:length(i) - 1]);
sapply(i, function(x) c(rep(0, x - 1), 1)));

faces me with the problem of concatenating the result, which I could somehow not find a solution for.

Thank you very much in advance.
