With the link being made when the package is built, it's being linked to the binary in the build directory under the /tmp hierarchy. That directory gets deleted after it's done installing, so /usr/bin/writerscafe becomes a dead link. I'm pretty the way to make this work is to create a file called "writerscafe.install" and put the following functions in it:
post_install() {
ln -s /usr/share/writerscafe2/writerscafe /usr/bin/writerscafe
}

pre_remove() {
rm /usr/bin/writerscafe
}

Then add the following line to the PKGBUILD
install="writerscafe.install"
and remove the /usr/bin/writerscafe linking from the PKGBUILD

Note: I know what I'm doing in the install file is not pretty, but this is a binary program and there is no way to call the damn executable without symlinking it.

Sorry for late answer, but it seems that it requires the specific version 1.2 to work
