0004043: Making soap from tallow fails if lye is stockpiled
Making soap from tallow fails (manager-queued jobs complain of missing a "lye-contaiing item", and the workshop interface shows the job in red) if the lye barrels are in a stockpile (in my case, a food stockpile).

Forbidding the food stockpiles from accepting lye, and then dumping the barrels to a zone near the soaper, made the job available.
Make a food stockpile, and don't disallow lye in it. Get some lye barrels from the dwarven civ. Get some tallow. Attempt to make soap, while the lye is stockpiled.
No tags attached.

Easy to reproduce:
Embark with lye (I took 10, so the barrel had 2 items of lye[5] in it), buckets and logs and make a food stockpile.
Wait for lye to be placed in the food stockpile.
Enable all farming skills on at least one dwarf.
Build a soaper, butcher and kitchen with some logs and a bucket.
Butchered one of the wagonpullers to get fat.
Allow it to be rendered to tallow.
Verify nothing is tasked.
Appoint a manager.
