[texhax] \divides? mathabx?

I'm trying to use the \divides (and \notdivides)

I've found documentation that says those symbols are
in mathabx which I've downloaded from CTAN.

The TAR file delivers a '.dcl' file (mathabx.dcl), and
that file defines the symbols I'm after.

I've put the mathabx.sty file in my $TEXMFLOCAL
location, rebuilt the file database with texhash and
my document now finds the mathabx package but stops
when it can't find mathabx.dcl.

1. If there's an easier way to get these symbols, what
is it?  OR
2. Where should I put mathabx.dcl?

In general are there smooth ways to install La/TeX
packages?  I'd love to type "configure" and "make
install", but I'm happy to learn anything else that's
straightforward and reliable.
