Seeing Scott's suggestion makes me wonder whether
what you want is the graph most commonly described 
in statistical literature as a frequency polygon. 
(I don't recollect seeing the terminology "density
polygon".) In that case,  

. histogram ..., recast(line) 

doesn't work, but 

. twoway histogram ..., recast(line) 

does, at least in the example I tried.
