Greetings all.

I am new to piqi. Just trying to get started. Posting problems as I encounter them.

bertd@beam-dev:~/piqi/tests/boot_proto2piqi$ make
g++ -I. -o proto2piqi -lprotobuf -lprotoc -lpthread fatal error: google/protobuf/compiler/importer.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make: *** [proto2piqi] Error 1

I am using Debian testing. The protobufs include files are:

bertd@beam-dev:~$ ls /usr/include/google/protobuf
descriptor_database.h message_lite.h
descriptor.h reflection_ops.h
descriptor.pb.h repeated_field.h
descriptor.proto service.h
dynamic_message.h stubs
extension_set.h text_format.h
generated_message_reflection.h unknown_field_set.h
generated_message_util.h wire_format.h
io wire_format_lite.h
message.h wire_format_lite_inl.h

So the referenced include file really does not exist.
This seems like a real problem and not something I am doing wrong.

The failure clearly occurred when you attempted to run the tests, not the build itself. To resolve the problem, follow the instructions from the "prerequisites" section in tests/README.
