You are best off putting parenthesis round the whole if statement

if ((!empty($value1)) || 
    (!empty($value2)) || 
    (!empty($value3)) || 
    (!empty($value4)))

Are you sure you mean || and not && ? I've noticed that people often invert their logic when NOT conditions turn up. Your IF will be true if any of them are non-empty.
