0003487: custom stockpile, set to a specific BAR type will not get filled with bins
the dwarfes will only place the raw bars there, and will not use free available bins.

if you set it to a bar/block stockpile first (instead of custom) then it will take advantage of bins.
No tags attached.

Same as 0003486 - when you make a custom stockpile, you must allocate bins/barrels manually by querying the stockpile and pressing c/v or e/r.

The game intentionally does not assign bins or barrels to custom stockpiles since *all* items cannot be stored in at least one of those container types.
