Using SEARCH_PATH with VHDL libraries?

I can use SEARCH_PATH to point to verilog libraries (directories containing files whose names are the module names). 

I don't need to put the source files in the project since they are "found" via SEARCH_PATH just fine. 

But for VHDL, the library has a package of component declarations and then source files, so how can 

the package file be "found" by just referencing the library? 

So how do I use SEARCH_PATH for a library written in VHDL without including all the source files from the library in the project? 

Thanks.

Afaik, you HAVE to include all vhdl source files in your project. But Quartus tends to ignore libraries and references everything as "work"
