Have you tried Donald Arseneau's longdiv macro?

http://mechanics.civil.tohoku.ac.jp/~bear/bear-collections/style-files/ 
longdiv.sty

(e.g., you can enter: "\longdiv{8}{3}" to get the complete calculation
inserted.)

It produces results similar to the raw TeX below (from an old Tugboat):

  \newdimen\digitwidth \settowidth\digitwidth{0}
  \def~{\hspace{\digitwidth}}
\def\divrule#1#2{%
\noalign{\moveright#1\digitwidth%
\vbox{\hrule width#2\digitwidth}}}
  13\,\begin{tabular}[b]{@{}r@{}} 949 \\ \hline
          \big)
          \begin{tabular}[t]{@{}l@{}}
            12345 \\
            117 \\ \divrule{0}{4}
            ~~64 \\
            ~~52 \\ \divrule{2}{3}
            ~~125 \\
            ~~117 \\ \divrule{2}{3}
            ~~~~8
            \end{tabular}
            \end{tabular}
