Odds are good that you'll have to draw your own footprints for pots and
switches. If you're ordering your parts from some place like Mouser or
Digi-key, the spec sheet for the part is typically available on the product
page for the part. The spec sheet will usually have a little diagram for the
suggested hole arrangement or SMT pad pattern for the part. Given that
diagram it's easy to draw the footprint for the part in your PCB software.

If it's not easy to draw new footprints in your software, then, um, you're
using the wrong software. ;-)
