Only as a possibility, I suggest also corruption ussage of the blended words built thing = building ,may also explain the present meaning. Scrap thing, etc, always something disgusting in that is somewhat difficult to define. This explanation may not be the correct one, but the evolution of languages show even more extreme changes of meaning (meant thing) where the same word may signify the contrary in the neighbor country or even in the same. Transliteration by syllabes is also very frequent for the same or opposite meaning, and a mere letter in front of the word may entirely change the meaning of the root word.
