Interesting.  It is complaining about this thing:

	struct reftable_ref_record r2[] = { {
		.refname = "a",
		.update_index = 2,
		.value_type = REFTABLE_REF_DELETION,
	} };
	...
	struct reftable_ref_record want[] = {
		r2[0],
		r1[1],
		r3[0],
		r3[1],
	};

and somehow assuming that r2[0] corresponds to the first member of a
"struct reftable_ref_record" structure, which is "char *refname".
Of course, you cannot initialize a character pointer with a whole
struct, which is *not* what the code wants to do.  I would
understand if it were written incorrectly like so

BAD:	struct reftable_ref_record want[] = {
BAD:		{ r2[0] },
BAD:		{ r1[1] },
BAD:		{ r3[0] },
BAD:		{ r3[1] },
BAD:	};

but that is not what we fed the compiler.  But apparently the
compiler is confused.

I wonder if it helps to use designated initializer on the latter, i.e.

	struct reftable_ref_record want[] = {
		[0] = r2[0],
		[1] = r1[1],
		[2] = r3[0],
		[3] = r3[1],
	};
