the first issue is the driver:

# lsusb
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 04e6:5292 SCM Microsystems, Inc. SCL011 RFID reader

# sudo pcscd -f
00000000 dyn_unix.c:37:DYN_LoadLibrary() /usr/lib/pcsc/drivers/SCL011.bundle/Contents/Linux/libSCL011.so.2.06: libusb-0.1.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
00000098 readerfactory.c:985:RFInitializeReader() RFLoadReader failed: 0xFFFFFFFF80100014
00000070 readerfactory.c:312:RFAddReader() SCL011 Contactless Reader [SCL01x Contactless Reader] (21161049211487) init failed.
00000035 hotplug_libudev.c:384:HPAddDevice() Failed adding USB device: SCL011 Contactless Reader

The readers LED isn't on.

I wonder what to run as a replacement for # /etc/rc.d/pcscd start.

The second issue is the application:

Is there a way to convert packages for other distros to Arch packages or
to directly install files from a package?

man alien says

-d, --to-deb
Make debian packages. This is the default.

-r, --to-rpm
Make rpm packages.

-t, --to-tgz
Make tgz packages.

Make slp packages.

-p, --to-pkg
Make Solaris pkg packages.

-i, --install
Automatically install each generated package, and remove the package
file after it has been installed.

Available are packages for Ubuntu ≥ 10.04, Debian ≥ 6 and for openSUSE ≥
11.4 https://www.ausweisapp.bund.de/pweb/filedownload/download_pre.do

I tried the Ubuntu packages with

# alien --scripts -vkt AusweisApp_010900_i686.deb
# alien --scripts -vkt AusweisApp_IntegrityTool_010900_i686.deb

But I don't know what to do with the tgz files ;).

FWIW # alien --scripts -vkti AusweisApp_IntegrityTool_010900_i686.deb
Sorry, I cannot install the generated .tgz file because /sbin/installpkg
is not present. You can use tar to install it yourself.

Extracting the TGZ isn't a help :S.

I want to use the RFID chip from the German ID card, that's why I want
to install this app.
