How do I import Ignition Msg protobufs into my own custom protobuf?

I am trying to make a custom message that uses ignition::msgs::Vector3d and ignition::msgs::Quaternion. Here is my state.proto

syntax = "proto2";

package cdrone.messages;

import "quaternion.proto";
import "vector3d.proto";

message State
  required int64 time = 1;

  required Vector3d position = 2;
  required Vector3d velocity = 3;
  required Quaternion attitude = 4;
  required Vector3d angular_velocity = 5;

Here is the CMakeLists.txt I am using to compile the protobufs:


set(PROTOBUF_INCLUDE_DIRS ${PROTOBUF_INCLUDE_DIRS} "/usr/include/ignition/msgs1/ignition/msgs")


PROTOBUF_GENERATE_CPP(ProtoSources ProtoHeaders ${ProtoFiles})
add_library(messages SHARED ${ProtoSources})
target_link_libraries(messages ${PROTOBUF_LIBRARY})

It looks like it finds the proto files but when it tries to compile an imported proto inside the imported proto, it fails to find the file.
