4 way switch

doing some remodeling. I have a 4 way switch in the living room, which goes to a 4 way switch in the bedroom which goes to the porch light. I would like to take the switch out of the bedroom. can I take the wire from the living room and hook it direcly to the porch light so the four way switch works as a single pole on and off switch, or can I run the 4 wire into a junction box, hook that up to 3 wire and run the 3 wire to the porch light and use the 4 way switch in the living room as a single pole on and off switch? Since it is a older home and due to the ungodly amount of 4 way switches all over the house, it is not practical to start from scratch for the porch light and switch. Is this something I can safely do? Thank You, Mike Foshee
