So far as I know, this cannot be done directly.  It looks like general polygons can’t be part of footprints. 

However, building it out of lines is actually a pretty good workaround.  I was able to draw an open star with just five line segments (six clicks total!), which seems to convert into an element just fine.  With a fatter line width (and about 30 seconds), I was able to fill the shape with lines, making a solid star shape. And that works as an element too.  Not half bad, actually. :)
