          \context Voice = VA { \stemDown
            <gis2 \> e b> < \! fis8 dis b^\accent> r b a 
            <gis2 b,> <fis cis>

The simple principle is to place the \> after the note where
the decrescendo should start and the \! before the finishing
note. At least in the reference manual, this is explained in 
a reasonably concise way. For a chord, you could use any of 
the simulaneous notes, so another possible version of your 
example is

          \context Voice = VA { \stemDown
            <gis2 e b\> > < fis8 \! dis b^\accent> r b a 
            <gis2 b,> <fis cis>
