Thanks for the reply :-)

I've checked for all that!

I even ended up copying my tomcat folder and my eclipse tomcat
configuration folder from my computer to his,

So they are literally the same configuration.

I know the connector configuration is being read because if, for example, I
remove the .keystore file I get an error. Or if I change the port the SSL
connector starts listening on that port on deployment.

Also, I made sure we are launching using the same JRE.

I tried clientAuth="true" instead of "want". And accesing from my browser
on my computer. Still no client certificate request. Log files don't show
any errors.

We even tried to reboot the system ^^'.

Eclipse versions differ, but I don't see how that could result in tomcat
not requesting SSL client certs...

Anyway, since we couldn't find the cause I recommended him to use a fresh
tomcat 7 install, download the last eclipse-JEE and java SDK, using a new
workbench, and starting a new project redownloading the source files from
the repo. It's a little overkill, but that should do it...
